About the Conference
The International Paediatric Brain Injury Society (IPBIS) is pleased to announce that IPBIS2020, the Fourth International Conference on Paediatric Acquired Brain Injury, will be held August 27-29, 2020 in New York City. Abstracts will be accepted through March 12, 2020.
This international event builds on the success of IPBIS’s prior conferences held in Liverpool (2015), Rome (2017) and Belfast (2018).
The conference will focus on the development of innovative treatments, rehabilitation programs, support mechanisms and ways to improve the lives and potential of young people affected by brain injury. The educational program will be inclusive of all issues relating to paediatric brain injury, both traumatic (e.g., external physical force injuries, penetrating injuries) and atraumatic (e.g., infectious diseases, tumors, stroke, neurotoxic poisonings).
Unparalleled Networking Opportunities
This global event will provide a unique opportunity for establishing collegial relationships with other international professionals focused on the care of children and young adults with brain injury and/or the science of paediatric brain injury research.
The conference offers an unparalleled platform to share scientific results, explore new treatment paradigms, develop new friendships and form new collaborations.
IPBIS2020 will be at the world-famous Westin New Yorker Hotel, located in the heart of New York City. Built during the height of the Jazz Age, the New Yorker Hotel has dazzled visitors with its Art Deco décor, exceptional service, and superb location in for generations. The New Yorker has a history as intriguing as her intricate design, welcoming celebrities, politicians and artists for decades. The “Grand Old Lady” has been a striking component of the New York skyline since her 1930 inception. The hotel enjoys a superb location in Midtown Manhattan, just minutes from Times Square, Empire State Building, and many of the city’s other famous attractions.
